Decent BA / SPG / Gold / Platinum Amex offer – £10 off £30 at WH Smith

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

A decent new American Express promotion has appeared in the online accounts of many people.   I have it showing under my Platinum card although it is not showing for my SPG or BA Amex.  My wife does have it showing for her BA Amex.

(EDIT: As per the comments below, it seems that this offer is also on Foursquare.  This should mean that you can register every Amex card you own as long as you have a Foursquare account for each and register via their app.)

The deal offers £10 statement credit when you spend £30 at WH Smith.  It is valid for the first 30,000 people to register.

If you think that WH Smith doesn’t have much to offer, think again.  The larger (non-railway and non-airport) stores tend to sell a decent range of gift cards for a start.  This effectively means that you can transfer your £10 saving to a different retailer altogether!

Stocking up on stamps is another possibility.  You will also find a range of toys in some stores as well as the usual books, magazines etc.

If you can find a suitably large store – for Londoners, there is a good one just a few steps from Chancery Lane tube station for example – you could save yourself a few pounds across various Amex cards relatively easily.

The deadline for spending the £30 is 15th October.
